CLIMATE CHANGE

Polar bears are in danger of extinction if the ice caps melt

 

 

Because of our energy indulgences our ice caps are melting, sea levels rising and deserts are spreading. The rate at which we are consuming fossil fuels is causing global warming and changing our climate, possible irreversibly if our world leaders do nothing.

 

The plain truth is that international politics is not working. If the present system was working, we would not be facing these tragedies. Sloth is the enemy. Instead of jerking their fingers from a hot oven, they relish burns. Politicians need to improve their reaction times or fry.

 

The rise in ocean temperature is doing more harm that just making sea levels rise as the polar ice caps melt. These were the planet's heat sink and they are vanishing at an alarming rate.

 

Solar and wind power for ocean transport would help to combat climate change, but only if we act now to develop alternative technologies that will allow us to adapt in time so that we do not lose the international trade we enjoy.

 

 

 

 

SeaVax ocean plasctic cleaning machine

 

ZERO CARBON WORKBOAT - The draft specification for SeaVax, is for a vessel capable of filtering seawater using only energy from nature, so not adding to climate change and acid oceans. The vessel needs to be of a size to cope with 8 million tons of plastic entering the sea every year, operating in numerically containable fleets to transport recovered plastic to land for recycling. This design has 220 m2 of solar panels. A similar energy harvesting concept for bigger boats and ships has 334 m2 on a lightweight superstructure to offer over 3kW per ton for cargo and cruise vessels.

 

 

 

These are just six ways that warmer temperatures are affecting our oceans:-

 

1. Coral bleaching

As early as 1990, coral reef expert Tom Goreau and I pointed out that mass coral bleaching events observed during the 1980’s were probably due to anomalously warm temperatures related to climate change.

Mass coral bleaching results in the starvation, shrinkage and death of the corals that support the thousands of species that live on coral reefs.

 

2. Fish migration

In addition, many fish species have moved toward the poles in response to ocean warming, disrupting fisheries around the world.

 

 

 

Help us to declare a climate emergency in East Sussex County Council, David Elkin

 

 

CLIMATE EMERGENCY - On October 15 2019 East Sussex County Council will debate a climate emergency motion. The conservative proposal has no commitment to zero carbon by 2030 and no measurable targets or deadlines for action. This is not good enough. Please sign our petition calling for East Sussex County Council to follow the lead of Hastings, Lewes and Eastbourne and commit to zero carbon by 2030 and a plan to get there.

We know that climate change is one of the most urgent challenges of the 21st century, and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has made it clear that we only have until 2030 to take positive action.

 

District and borough councils across East Sussex have made commitments to becoming carbon neutral by 2030 including Hastings, Lewes and Eastbourne, but this won’t happen without a similar commitment by East Sussex County Council.

Let the County Council know how you feel, and add your signature to our plea to recognise that the climate emergency is the responsibility of all levels of local government. Call on them to declare a state of emergency and take real action across the county.

To: Cllr David Elkin, Chair, East Sussex County Council


From: Frank Kay

Climate change is one of the most urgent challenges of the 21st century. Avoiding the worst impacts is still possible, but only if national, regional and local authorities take rapid and ambitious action now. Bold climate action can deliver new green jobs and economic benefits, preserve wildlife and habitats, and improve life for people worldwide.

District and borough councils across East Sussex have already made commitments to becoming carbon neutral by 2030, including Hastings, Lewes and Eastbourne. But meeting this target will be impossible without a similar commitment from East Sussex County Council.

We therefore call on East Sussex County Council to:

• Declare a climate emergency
• Set a target for East Sussex to be carbon neutral by 2030 and put a plan in place within six months to achieve this aim.
• Put this goal at the forefront of all future decision making
• Call on Government to support the Council to achieve this aim
• Be pro-active as the education authority in ensuring the young people of East Sussex have a voice in shaping this zero carbon future.
• To support a series of county wide citizens’ assemblies on the climate crisis and implement their recommendations.
• Commit to the principles outlined in the Wildlife Trust’s Nature Recovery Network that puts space for nature at the heart of our planning systems in order to bring nature into the places where most people live their daily lives.
• Revise the transport strategy to reduce car use and put walking, cycling and sustainable transport at the centre of future plans for the county.
• Commit to a zero waste strategy and embed the principles of a circular economy into its future corporate plan.

Limiting Global Warming to 1.5C may still be possible with ambitious action from national regional and local authorities, civil society, the private sector and local communities. Bold climate action can deliver new green jobs and economic benefits, preserve wildlife and habitats, and improve life for people worldwide.

 

 

 

 

3. Fish shrinkage

 

A new study (21-8-17) by researchers at the University of British Columbia explains that fish are cold blooded and cannot regulate their own body temperatures. Thus, when their waters get warmer, their metabolism accelerates and more oxygen is needed to sustain body functions. For this reason fish could shrink in size by 20 to 30 per cent if ocean temperatures rise by just 2°C (3.6°F) - about what is expected to occur around the world by the mid-21st century.

 

4. Drowning wetlands

Rising sea levels, partly the result of heat absorbed by the ocean, is also “drowning” wetlands. Wetlands normally grow vertically fast enough to keep up with sea level rise, but recently the sea has been rising too fast for wetlands to keep their blades above water.

Coral reefs and sea grass meadows are also in danger of “drowning” since they can only photosynthesize in relatively shallow water.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Ocean acidification

The ocean has absorbed about 30 percent of the carbon dioxide humans have sent into the atmosphere since the start of the Industrial Revolution – some 150 billion tons.

However, this great service, which has substantially slowed global warming, has been accomplished at great cost: The trend in ocean acidification is about 30 times greater than natural variation, and average surface ocean pH, the standard measure of acidity, has dropped by 0.1 unit - a highly significant increase in acidity.

This is damaging many ocean species that use calcium carbonate to form their skeletons and shells. Studies have shown that calcium carbonate formation is disrupted if water becomes too acidic.

Ocean acidification also appears to be affecting whole ecosystems, such as coral reefs, which depend on the formation of calcium carbonate to build reef structure, which in turn provides homes for reef organisms.

 

6. A disastrous positive feedback loop

Finally, acidification also appears to be reducing the amount of sulfur flowing out of the ocean into the atmosphere. This reduces reflection of solar radiation back into space, resulting in even more warming.

This is the kind of positive feedback loop that could result in run-away climate change – and of course, even more disastrous effects on the ocean.

BUILD UP - Plastic has accumulated in five ocean hot spots called gyres, see here in this world map derived from information published by 5 Gyres.

 

 

 

 

 

FAST FOOD SLOW DEATH - It's not just fast food, it is our exploitative society that is poisoning the planet, without thought for the consequences. We've been living at artificially low prices at the expense of killing other life on earth. Eat cheap now and suffer later, with health services picking up the tab and costing the taxpayer more than if we'd dealt with ocean dumping up front.

 

It is possible to turn the tide of plastic into a revenue stream and at the same time reduce climate change - where plastic packaging has a smaller carbon footprint than other packaging mediums.
